List Price: (A18) $18.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 11-27-20) DiN label boss Ian Boddy has been releasing music since 1980. In the last 40 years he has seen Electronic Music grow and evolve beyond recognition. From analogue/modular synthesis to completely digital and back again. The six tracks on "Axiom" reference Boddy's musical routes with its pulsating sequencer passages that hark back to the Berlin School of Tangerine Dream, most especially on the track "Nitro". The self referential track "Boddy Love" is an in-joke with a nod to a classic 70's Klaus Schulze album which features gorgeous melodic lines that grow to a climax before fading into the distance. "Icon" with its subsonic bass throb and orchestral strings climbs to a sonic summit before crashing down to the sublime piece "The Fallen". Closing out the album, the title track bookends the opener "Omicron" with a slice of Synthwave that has it all: analogue sequences, vintage drum machines and soaring chords.

The collaborative trio of Ben Goldberg (clarinet, contra alto clarinet), Geof Bradfield (soprano and tenor saxophones, bass clarinet) and Dana Hall (percussion) explores new directions on General Semantics. Their Delmark Records debut features original music by the trio as well as unique interpretations of Duke Ellington, Cecil Taylor, and Hermeto Pascoal. The unusual instrumentation-especially the lack of a bassist- enables the musicians to transcend traditional instrument roles of accompaniment, improvisation, and interaction and create music that embraces form and harmony alongside freedom and spontaneous improvisation.

Frankie Carle (born Francis Nunzio Carlone, March 25, 1903 – March 7, 2001) was an American pianist and bandleader. As a very popular bandleader in the 1940s and 1950s, Carle was nicknamed “The Wizard of the Keyboard”. “Sunrise Serenade” was Carle’s best-known composition, rising to No. 1 in the US in 1938 and selling more than one million copies Carle started out working with a number of mainstream dance bands. In 1934, he played with Mal Hallett and his orchestra. In 1935, he had his own orchestra and was billed in an ad for one night club as “America’s Greatest Pianist.” He received attention when he joined Horace Heidt and His Musical Knights in 1939. He later became co-leader of the band. The popularity he attained while with Heidt’s band allowed him to leave the band in 1944 and form his own band, The Frankie Carle Orchestra. His band disbanded after 1955 and he performed mainly as a soloist thereafter. From the 1950s until the 1980s, Carle performed as a single artist and maintained a close following of loyal fans.

List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"Once in a great while, a musician emerges with such authority and such seemingly effortless originality that his place in the front ranks of his instrument is unquestioned. So it is with David Friesen." - Nat Hentoff. A major international jazz figure for over 50 years, bassist-composer David Friesen continues his unflagging process of creating new defining works, with the ambitious, expansive, and deeply personal musical explorations found on Testimony. Through the desire to better understand his Mother's Ukrainian heritage, and with inspired leg-work from his Czech-based assistant, Natalie Digtyar, Friesen found himself on a 2015 tour of family landmarks in Smila, Ukraine, fully researched and led by a television crew and the local historical museum. Meeting Oleksandr Pirozhenko, director of the National Academic Symphonic Band of Ukraine, set in motion the collaboration heard here, beginning with a sold-out 2016 "homecoming" concert in Smila's Concert Hall, followed by this live recording from Kiev's National Philharmonic Hall in December, 2018. Arrangements of Friesen's profoundly spiritual compositions unfold, offering passages exploding with orchestral grandeur alongside lone whispers from solo piano, vibes or bass, and intimate quartet vignettes, all reflecting the myriad emotions exposed through his journey of ancestral discovery.

"Jihee Heo has done for me that rare and beautiful thing I value and cherish most about incredible music, she has inspired me." - Kirk Whalum. Raised in South Korea, pianist-composer Jihee Heo studied in Amsterdam before receiving her Masters from the Manhattan School of Music in 2013. Now with a decade ensconced in New York's music scene, Jihee found inspiration for producing this album of alternately pastoral and grooving trio music through Robert Henry's classic treatise for artists, "Art Spirit." Reciting passages in the opening track, "Are You Ready?," the sense of offering a vision into her musical process and deep involvement with 'the moment' informs the 8 artfully melodic original compositions. Along with the wide-ranging talents of drummer Rodney Green, who also co-produces, and bassist Marty Kenney, rapper Saidu Ezike voices Jihee's ambivalence toward her New York experience on "Trust," followed by what could be considered a love note to the city on the instrumental "Oh, New York." "Jihee is a very special artist. She uses her music to paint vivid pictures and take the listener on a journey they're sure to enjoy." - Rodney Green

The Queen Of Italian Pop - Classic Ri-fi Recordings 1963-1967
Release Date: 10/9/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (B20) $20.98 

Mina is Italy's most successful female recording artist of all time. Her recordings for the Ri-Fi label - featuring spectacular singing, superb songs and stunning orchestrations - are among the finest to come out of Italy in the mid-60s. Following her initial Italian hits, she enjoyed tremendous success all around the world, but never in English-speaking countries, where very few of her recordings were made available and she remains unknown to all but a small number of hardcore aficionados. This cherry-picked selection of highlights from her matchless Ri-Fi catalogue is designed to remedy that situation. Standouts include 'Se Telefonando…', a sophisticated opus composed and orchestrated by the great maestro Ennio Morricone; 'È L'Uomo Per Me', Mina's chart-topping cover of Jodie Miller's 'He Walks Like A Man'; the intense and dramatic 'L'Immensità' with its breathtaking long notes; the super-fast and playful 'Brava', a song custom-written to show off her great vocal technique; and her gorgeous rendition of Jobim's 'Insensatez'. Compilation and notes by Mick Patrick.

He was born Annunzio Paolo,Mantovani in Venice on November 15th 1905. His father was the principal violinist at La Scala , Milan under Toscanini, and played also for Richter, Saint-Saens and Mascagni. Though he taught young Annunzio to play the violin, his father warned him off a career in music. It was in vain for Mantovani was playing professionally by the time he was sixteen. When the family moved to London, his father played at Covent Garden, while Mantovani Junior studied at Trinity College of Music. By 1925 his small orchestra at the Metropole Hotel boasted Reginald Kilbey and George Melachrino as sidemen. many composers, conductors and performers owe a lot nowadays to the gramophone, but few as much as Mantovani. Soon after World War II there was an increasing demand for his records in America. Something different was needed. The final selection was of an orchestra of forty-five musicians, thirty-two of whom comprised the string section Mantovani toured Europe, South Africa, Canada and Japan. The high record sales continued into the 1970s. Decca records were so pleased with their artist that the presented him with a diamond-studded baton in 1966, when he had been with them for a quarter of a century. By 1971 Mantovani had sold fifty million LPs in the U.S. alone. Eighteen of them were gold discs, having sold a million copies.

(2-CD set) When guitarist Peter Leitch heard the diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer in 2012, and the grim prognosis of 11 months to live, he made the hard choice of undergoing potentially career-ending treatment rather than succumb to the disease. Eight years later, thanks to his indomitable spirit and a brilliant oncologist, he is still live--unable to play his instrument but still driven to create music. Peter has re-invented himself as a composer, arranger, and director of a 14-piece orchestra. Celebrating this transformation, he has released New Life, the Peter Leitch New Life Orchestra's debut recording, Jazz House 7006/7. "After coming to terms with the loss of the use of my left arm as the result of the chemo and radiation," Peter says, "It occurred to me that I was free from the tyranny of the jazz guitar--of having to practice every day. I realized I could create music that was not limited to four fingers on six strings. I began to write." Over the next two years, Peter composed, arranged, and orchestrated the 17 pieces that comprise this two-CD set. Encouraged by his friends and the success of a series of jazz club performances, the band went into the studio! Listeners will find a distillation of "all the music I've ever heard--from hard bop to rural blues to more modern abstract elements."

Newport Jazz Festival 1959
Release Date: 11/20/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

At the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival, Shearing brought an adventurous new 16-piece group, premiering material from his recently released Capitol album, Burnished Brass. Shearing’s usual quintet of guitar, vibraphone, bass and drums was augmented for this occasion by an 11-piece brass section consisting of four trumpets, four trombones, two French horns and one tuba. The result was a sound that was soothing rather than bracing, warm and engaging rather than aggressive. In some ways, this was mood music, strictly intended to appease rather than excite the smooth jazz of its time. Shearing did spice up the proceedings by mixing in two compelling Latin jazz numbers, Mambo No. 2 and Rondo (both from 1958’s Latin Lace album), which showcased the great Afro-Cuban percussionist Armando Peraza (later of the Carlos Santana band).

We have included Turk Mauro's original liner notes within the album art, the recording quality is excellent and still stands up in today's digital world. The session is largely a straight ahead jam, both arranged and loose, and really stands as a showcase for the amazing drumming talent of Ron Turso, one of the unsung heroes of jazz drums, as we hear influences from Gene Krupa all the way to Tony Williams. The material ranges from standard show tunes to Jazz standards. There is no slacking here, as this is as high-level as it gets!

Volume 13 in the acclaimed Eric Records "Hard To Find 45s on CD" series spotlights the most common theme in pop music: love!

But this collection is far from common. Sure, almost all of the songs are Top 20 hits, but they're not widely available on other CD collections, and some aren't available anywhere else. SIX hits make their CD debut, and half of those appear in stereo for the first time on CD! These include two tracks from the long-lost master tapes by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds. And for collectors, there's new stereo by Five Flights Up and the Avant-Garde.

On a more serious note, Eric is proud to present the rare and spiritual "Wedding Song (There Is Love)" by Paul Stookey, featuring Stookey's exquisite 12-string guitar playing. It's followed by John Denver's beautiful #1 hit "Annie's Song" and two joyous chorales: the Edwin Hawkins Singers' "Oh Happy Day" and the U.S. CD debut of the classic "A Song of Joy," based on the final movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. All in all, a terrific mix of both lighthearted and inspiring pop gems!

Expect the famous sparkling sound and packaging quality found on all the Eric "Hard To Find 45s on CD" volumes, with only the correct single versions from the original master tapes in true stereo. Includes a 12-page booklet with detailed biographies of all the artists by well-known music author Greg Adams. (Previously deleted: 1/1/18. Original release date: 9/18/12)

Lofts & Garages - Spring Records And The Birth Of Dance Music
Release Date: 11/13/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

1980s New York was where modern dance music took its first steps; a phoenix rising out of the ashes of disco's over-exposure and demise. The underground scene was the very opposite of the celebrity-sprinkled commercialism of Studio 54 - "Lofts & Garages" looks at how the Spring label, with its brand new 1980s subsidiary Posse, reacted to the new movement. Label mainstays Fatback were always searching for a new groove and kept an eye on the floor. Their final single for the label, 'Spread Love', was remixed by Morales and Munzibai. Fatback's Bill Curtis and Gerry Thomas also produced the sought-after boogie single 'Get Up An' Dance (Dance With Me)' for Mynk. Others featured include one of the most distinctive voices in dance music, Fonda Rae, with her single 'Live It Up', released here in its rare radio edit; veteran soul man Lonnie Youngblood with his gospel-influenced 'Sing A Song'; Detroit dance pioneers C-Brand's 'Wired For Sound' and Body's 'Have Your Cake', which has an early mixing credit for dance music legend Timmy Regisford. These records may not have all worked on the floor of the Paradise Garage, but they were part of the energy that was given off by that and the rest of New York's vibrant post-disco era.

Happy Times - The Songs Of Dan Penn % Spooner Oldham Vol. 2
Release Date: 11/13/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

"Happy Times" brings you another two-dozen examples of their stellar collaborations and goes even deeper into their sheaf of copyrights than our previous volumes have done. Here we feature tracks from their time working together in Muscle Shoals and Memphis, with a broad spread of repertoire than embraces deep soul, sweet soul, southern pop, country and even an instrumental. Star names here include Dan's pet project the Box Tops, Sandy Posey, Wilson Pickett, Ronnie Milsap, B J Thomas and many others whose careers intersected in the 60s with those of Dan and Spooner - to everyone's advantage. Almost none of the versions of the songs featured here have been on any previous Ace CD. Many have never been on CD at all. With a booklet chock full of information and illustrations, and the usual Ace attention to detail in the annotation, "Happy Times" is yet another salute to the words and music of these two magnificent songwriters.
